My boyfriend and I stayed here at the weekend as a belated Christmas gift to ourselves, which also coincided with his birthday. I've stayed here before for my Mum's 60th, but my boyfriend hadn't. Having filled in the questionnaire they send you before you stay, they knew it was my boyfriends birthday. Arriving at the hotel on the Saturday morning,...

Just returned from an amazing evening at The Grand Hotel. We book an offer for Tasting menu which was the best value for money we have ever had. The food was superb, the waiters attentive and knowledgeable. We are in a smaller restaurant which had lovely ambience. We are booking to go back again soon. Thanks for a lovely visit.

We stayed at The Grand for two nights. Overall we had a lovely time here, but there were a few things that could be of a better standard. Room: We stayed in a classic room, which was good. We requested to have the mini bar stocked. The room was large and had quality fittings. There were plenty of Molton Brown...

Visited the Grand for a Saturday night stay and every aspect of our stay was perfect. We were greeted at the door of the hotel and offered valet parking straightaway. All of the staff that we interacted with during check in were very helpful. The rooms are huge and have all the expected amenities. The Milton brown toiletries were also...

Two of us were treated to a two night stay at this hotel. It's in a great location, has beautiful rooms and we enjoyed an excellent dinner and breakfasts. However, considering the cost of the stay, we were surprised to have been charged an extra £5 for a cooked breakfast from the breakfast menu. The massage I had in the...

You couldn't ask for more in a place to stay in York. Just across the street on the other side of the Roman wall from the train station, the hotel is just 2 blocks away from the center of it all. Excellent customer service. A great pool and spa in the basement. This was the old headquarters for the railway...
